Earthworks Urban Farm is a program of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, a human services organization inspired by the spirit of St Francis of Assisi, and sponsored by the Province of St Joseph of the Capuchin Order. Earthworks seek to promote sustainable agricultural practices, nutrition, and care for the Earth. We strive for peace, respect, and harmony between Neighbor and Nature.
A wide variety of vegetables is grown on a two -and -a -half -acre plot, utilizing no herbicides and no pesticides. The harvest is distributed among neighborhood residents and utilized in the meals served in the Soup Kitchen dining rooms. Earthworks rely on the generous donations from supporters of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, and on time and materials from sponsors and volunteers.
Neighbors and friends of all ages, incomes and faiths join us in our work.
